Poem: Missing Comforts

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Missing comforts is about one missing things others take for granted. Like brand names she cannot afford, or the privacy sitting on her patio. Now her backyard is now an open area with noisey neighbors so she hides in her apartment. She misses feeling useful yearning for the company of her cat.

Missing Comforts

She longs for those little comforts
others take for granted,
like brand name products
she can no longer afford.

She watches every cent,
pinching each penny
trying to make ends meet,
settling for what her money can buy.

She longs for those moments
that cost nothing,
like sitting outside on her deck
in private solitude,
but now her backyard is an open field
for all to see,
with noisy neighbors
living only feet away.

Hiding away inside her tiny apartment
she misses the feeling of being useful,
of having a purpose in life,
as she prepares dinner for one
yearning for the company of her kitty-cat.
